What do you do when you find out you’re pregnant – times
When Jane Roper found out she was pregnant with twins, she
searched high and low for a memoir of the first years with
multiples, but came up empty-handed. Four years later, she
wrote the book she wished she’d had as a new mother of
Double Time is an entertaining, up-close and very
personal look at Jane Roper's first three years raising
twin daughters. From trying to get pregnant to processing
the idea of twins, from round the clock feedings and
diaper changes to the joy of watching “twinteractions”
between her girls as their (very different!) personalities
emerge, Jane tells all. Meanwhile, she struggles to keep a
history of depression under control—and find answers when
her symptoms get worse. All this while falling steadily in
love with her duo as they grow from sleepy newborns to
mischievous toddlers with a penchant for potty talk.
Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and more than
a little humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging
account of the first three years with multiples, as well
as a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at parenting,
clinical depression, and the quest for work-family
balance. It’s Jane Roper’s story, but it’s one that will
resonate with countless women—especially those parenting
in double time.
